Ontopo: Retreat as Artist Studio, Site for Production and Exhibition

Ontopo typically begins as a retreat that positions everyone in the group to somehow be a part of an artwork. Over the course of a few days, time is made for experiencing site-specific work. performing and or producing work outside of the traditional art world context: the artists studio, gallery and performance venue are combined. Within each retreat, artworks are produced, new social contexts are created and a deeper understanding of the land is internalized.

There are no retreats currently planned but join our mailing list to stay informed.
